Introducing The Heron Downtown

September 13, 2018 / Baton Rouge

In downtown Baton Rouge, a new, amenity-rich collection of homes is rising. The Heron Downtown, located at 625 Convention St. at the corner of 6th Street and Convention Street, brings a new livability to the city’s energetic and lively center.

With 142 units, this amenity-rich property will be the largest complex in downtown Baton Rouge. Located a short walk from the area’s most popular dining, nightlife, music, festivals, and outdoor activities, The Heron Downtown perfectly marries upscale tranquility with urban energy.

Visitors will be struck by the beauty and uniqueness of the building as soon as they enter the leasing office and walk up the grand staircase to the second-floor clubhouse mezzanine. Designed by SGN+A Architecture and outfitted by Kenneth Brown, a Baton Rouge native and renowned interior designer with client’s ranging from Frozen star Kristen Bell to former Boston Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra, The Heron Downtown’s interior draws heavily from the natural cues and peaceful flow of the nearby Mississippi River.

Each floor features large-scale wall art from John J. Audubon’s Birds of America watercolor series and custom carpet that flows and meanders like the nearby waterway. The building’s name itself pays homage to one of the state’s most beautiful and elegant native birds, the heron.

Overlooking BREC’s Convention Street Park and offering amazing views of the river and capital skyline, the homes provide an extraordinary array of in-apartment finishes. Featuring imported granite countertops, modern custom cabinetry, and private covered balconies, each apartment is perfect for entertaining.

The building’s common spaces provide fun, relaxing and practical experiences for residents to enjoy. Dual third-floor courtyards offer residents the opportunity to enjoy a resort-style pool with cabana lounge on the south side or a quiet relaxation garden on the north side. Residents can also shoot pool in the billiards room, grab a complimentary bike for a cruise around downtown, or rinse off their dog after a walk in the pet grooming area.
